New Untimed Quests in FarmVille

After FarmVille went through a very impractical and frustrating stage wherein only 4 Quests could be displayed on a farmer's screen, I (as well as a number of others, no doubt!) suggested that FarmVille use a Quest Manager similar to those in other games, including Family Farm.  Recently, FarmVille not only implemented the system, but added a number of new Untimed Quests.

The Untimed Quests allow players to work at their own pace and to obtain Limited Edition items, in many cadses, that they may have missed in the past and do not appear in the Marketplace.  For example, the Chinese New Year Quest sequence offers many of the Lunar New Year Animals as rewards.

FarmVille Freak is a wonderful site that usually makes any efforts of mine to publish information about FarmVille rather superfluous.  In the case of the Untimed Quests, however, I have not been able to find any details on that site and therefore am posting whatever information I obtain either from my own game or from contributors who play FarmVille on this site.

Unfortunately, I did not think of this plan until I had progressed through a number of steps in a couple of the Quests.  What is posted here therefore at this point in time is a 'work on progress'  Ultimately, I will create a separate page on this site for the Untimed Quests for which I have all details:

Why are details about Quests helpful? The primary reason is to give Players details about the Crops they will need to harvest to satisfy requirements for completion of a step.  Where more than one Quest requires the same Crop harvest, a Player often can synchronise his/her farming efforts to allow the harvest to count towards more than one Quest sequence.

Another reason are the Rewards.  If you know the Rewards in advance, you can decide whether or not it is worth your time and effort to pursue any given Quest.

If a Player has the energy and determination, I would welcome ALL details, including the names of the Quest steps and every reward.  The most important details, however are simply the Crops required for each step, Animal harvests required and special Limited Edition Items given as Rewards.  Usually any Reward will include Coins and XP as well as an Item, but the Item is the most important in terms of creating a guide for Players of FarmVille.
